Kari Sanders

From the beginning of her career as a stylist, Kari has had one vision: GET. SHIT. DONE.

In school at OGLE she helped start the fashion show that evolved into the now famous What’s Next? awards. She has pushed herself into the spotlight of every salon she has worked at. She has headed up creative teams, worked as a Sebastian/Wella brand educator, and evolved as both a stylist, as well as a business-minded woman.

She is a native of Fort Worth Texas where she lives with her husband and two children. The salon industry has allowed her to provide for her family for 10 fruitful years and continues to grow thanks to her ongoing studies in color theory, as well as the business coaching she receives from my own coaches.

Mathieu Jacob

I am a stylist and colorist, with specialized training in color, which I did in France 27 years ago now. My taste for challenges and travel led me to immigrate to Quebec 9 years ago, after spending several years in Paris, where I was an educator for a Parisian salon group.

I have explored various facets of our profession from the salon to the studio, but I have a real passion for education, I could only do that if necessary. For me, it’s by sharing our knowledge that everyone evolves. Art, cinema, fashion, are my main sources of inspiration.

I joined the Redken artistic team four years ago. I have participated many times in Contessa and Naha and had the chance in 2015 to win the Canadian and North American Team of the Year title.

Je suis styliste et coloriste, avec une formation spécialisé en couleur, que j’ai effectué en France il y a maintenant 27 ans. Mon gout pour les défis et les voyages m’ont poussé à immigrer au Québec il y a maintenant 9 ans, après avoir passés plusieurs années à Paris, ou j’étais éducateur pour un groupe de salon Parisien.

J’ai exploré diverses facettes de notre métier du salon au studio, mais j’éprouve une vraie passion pour l’éducation, je ne pourrais faire que cela si il le fallait. Pour moi c’est en partageant notre savoir que chacun évolue. L’art, le cinéma, la mode, sont sources mes principales sources d’inspirations.

J’ai rejoint l’équipe artistique Redken il y a quatre ans. J’ai participé a de nombreuses reprises aux Contessa et Naha et eu la chance en 2015 de remporter le titre équipe de l’année canadienne et Nord Amérique.
